    Enzo: I'm gonna be traveling from Southampton. About 213 miles or so! After taking my car to the GTI International at having a Revo Stage 1, Revo induction and Forge recirculation valve, then frying my clutch on the 1/4 mile, I'm booked in at AmD Tuning for a Sachs clucth and Loba Single Mass Flywheel. That should do the trick, eh?

    Wanton: Excellent stuff! What map you having done? Do you know Essex well?

    Revo Stage 1. They may be fitting a few bits as well but not decided yet. Nope don't know Essex at all. I was gonna put some films on my phone to keep me occupied lol.

    Ditto Wanton! Well...I'll be window shopping if I'm honest. I've already blown the bank on this car, so I won't be carrying bags of shopping back to AmD :-/ I'll happily help you guys shop though. I love shopping!

    I am FULLY heterosexual. I just like new shiny stuff.

    Wanton: How many miles has your car done? Have you had your clutch upgraded yet? Probably a good idea to budget for it.

    Also, are any of you gamers? If so, you got PS Vita's? We could have a gaming sesh to pass the time. Just an idea.

    how much is the clutch costing?
    i was thinking about going stage 1 soon but worried about the clutch as cars done 99k miles. Maybe you just had some pretty bad luck at gti international

    Luck had nothing to do with it. I took the cain out of the cupboard and gave that thing a damn good thrashing. In the interest of science you understand. It had absolutely nothing at all to do with releasing the dormant racer in me I swear!

    My car's done over 86,000 miles and, to my knowledge, hasn't had a new clutch since it rolled off the production line (and I do have a pretty comprehensive history for the car). So it could've been a number of factors. But trust me on this, if you are inclined to up the power, you will be inclined to get your monies worth by going hard through the rev range. It's an addiction that comes with the mod. Even if you plan to take it easy on the car post-mod, and you stick to that plan, be prepared to replace the clutch and flywheel.

    I'm having a Sachs Organic 550nm clutch and Loba single mass flywheel installed for £1,310 when I go to AmD Tuning. I think I may also have to have a release bearing replaced as well though for £60+ (as that appears to be the done thing).

    Admittedly, I'm quite the novice in all of this, so I welcome any and all experienced modders to correct me if I'm wrong or over zealous in any way with anything I've said here.

    Wanton: Probably about the same time as you. I mean, Ben at AmD said it'd take all day, so I figure I'll get there for opening time...ish.

    If you are thinking of changing your clutch and its OK at the moment speak to S3ALEX first. I believe I remember Alex saying he ran up to stage 2+ without changing clutch and it held out fine.

    Believe since you are spending that much on a clutch you might as well get the bearing as well mate!

    You're absolutely right. I'm not sure where the hell I was thinking of! I mean, I'm renowned for being absolutely diabolical when it comes to navigation (seriously, don't get in a car with me without knowing how to get to where you're going), but what I was remembering was an A - B Directions sourced from Google maps! Turns out though, having just searched again, it's 112 miles from me.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    I trust them to do all of the work on my car.
